"I do not claim that I can tell a story as it ought to be told. I only claim to know how a story ought to be told." -Mark Twain


You can sit at my table, You can use the red plate.....

You can sit at my table
You can use the red plate.
You can eat all the cupcakes
While we celebrate.

It's the word doctor's birthday
So join with me..
For the dots, stripes and colors
And fun you will see!......(me)

It was Dr. Seuss's birthday this week
So as an English teacher I thought it would be great if I made my tablescape to celebrate the doctor of words!

 "From there to here, and here to there,
funny things are everywhere."   Dr. Seuss

                            ""If you never did, you should. 
                    These things are fun, and fun is good."---Dr. Seuss

                                 Yes I love the color red
                               Blue and yellow like I said. 

                                  Do I love a polka dot?
                                   Love it, love it, love a lot!

Won't you come and be my guest?
I think you are the very best.

Suckers! Cupcakes! Oh how fun
Something good for everyone!

One fish, two fish, red fish, blue fish...
One dish, two dish, red dish, blue dish....

                                 Words on the table.

                                 Words by the plate.
                                  Words all around
                                  Will make it great.

                     I think I can say that the table is busy
                      Maybe that's why I'm feeling dizzy!


It might be busy and dizzy too
But it makes me smile to share it with you.



                             Happy Birthday Dr. Seuss!
